A large number of tannins "from the barrel" lead to headaches. Less sweet than Carta Vieja Anejo.

Самый заурядный ром, и цена подозрительно низкая для 8-летнего. Довольно быстро грузит голову. Вкусовых достоинств нет. Лучше купить стандартный Carta Vieja Anejo, если у вас немного денег.

Oak and vanilla shine through, with a hint of spice up front. Gets a bit harsh as it lingers on the tongue. Almost seems like a weak spiced rum. Had it over ice first, got better as the ice smoothed out the late harshness. Second one was in a rum and coke. Overall not too bad for the price point, now to try the olders brothers

This is a another inexpensive rum that will taste okay if you don't mind the after effect of a headache. But too sweet for me and a very strong alcohol taste at first unless you allow it to breathe. I tried it as a mixer with Coke, I tried with Ginger beer. It certainly wasn't unusable but I wouldn't serve it to a good friend.

Modest price rum in a modest price. Not bad, but not my first choice but certainly not my last. I keep a bottle on hand for people to share with people who have a less appreciation of rum than I do. The kindergarten of good rum.

I first saw their Golden Cask 18 Year in a nice gift box on the top shelf for only $50. I vaguely remembered a similar sounding name from these reviews and was about to buy it. Then on a few shelves lower was this 8 Year from the same company for only $20. Since I had never tried any of their rums and had no idea what to expect, this $20 dry aged rum from Panama was a no brainer and I bought it while leaving the 18 Year back on the shelf. I was also thinking of the "too long in the wood" ruining many of the rums aged in the tropics.

The strong taste of leather and wood dominates in a good way, with an underlying natural sweetness for a dry rum. Unlike my bottle of Kirk & Sweeney 12 that turned into the taste of funky leather after only 3 weeks, this one has a very pleasant taste of leather, almost like a premium bourbon such as from Rock Hill Farms.

I emphasize that this version is the one that specifically states "8 Anos" of aging, unlike it's younger brother with the same name and no age statement. This one also costs $5 US more.
